Earth around the sun, or sun around the earth?

They wake up every morning and think the sun revolves around the earth. They live in a different universe than the rest of us. They want you to join their new alternate reality.

These folks are marginalized and relatively unknown – and for good reason. They live in Nutsville, a cult that dwells on the far reaches of absurdity. They call themselves Geocentrists and they think the Earth is the center of the Universe, a universe which revolves around the earth. 

If you are wondering why I would even bother to draw your attention to this, it is because so many people are looking for radical solutions to our cultural problems. The world is out of kilter, intellectually, culturally, politically.  Young people are vulnerable to the Big Lie, the all-encompassing solution. They think some radical explanation will put it all in place.

It almost seems stupid to deal with this issue – but since some well-intentioned folks are falling into the pit, David Palm has done a great job of exposing and refuting the geocentrist’s untenable position. He wants these confused Catholics to come back to reality and stop unsettling simple and gullible folks. He wants to protect others from being sucked into this nefarious vortex.

The new website Geocentrism Debunked has its debut this week. It is up and ready to shed light into the darkness of this new cult. Want to view the geocentric’s websites and promoters? Dave Palm has them all provided on his new site. He also dissects the ideas with smooth precision. His website should be at the fingertips of anyone influenced by this new movement and shared with anyone who wants to understand.

Please share this link with your friends so they can avoid the slippery deception that is being purported as Catholic truth. Wolves love to dress like sheep; fools love to masquerade as wise men. We must be prepared to defend against all things in error and damaging to the faith.

Geocentrism Debunked is a marvelous “Grand Central Station” on this topic. Dave Palm has written clearly and thoughtfully with his usual intellectual prowess and well-contained sarcasm. He has also compiled an excellent collection of other resources. 

Pass this on. Remember www.GeocentrismDebunked.org.

Most ancient image of Mary with baby Jesus

Early Christian burial sites are now easier to see, both in person and via the Internet, thanks to 21st-century technology and collaboration between Google and the Vatican.

“This is perhaps the sign of the joining of two extremes, remote antiquity and modernity,” said Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi at a news conference Tuesday at the Catacombs of Priscilla in northeast Rome.

The cardinal, president of both the Pontifical Council for Culture and the Pontifical Commission for Sacred Archaeology, lauded recent restoration work by the archeological commission inside the complex of early Christian tombs.

Using advanced laser techniques, restorers have uncovered vivid late fourth-century frescoes depicting Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead and Sts. Peter and Paul accompanying Christians into the afterlife. Jesus’ face resembles portraits of the Emperor Constantine, who legalized Christian worship in 313.

What Kind of Music Did Abraham Listen To?

by Steve Ray on May 30, 2013

UrMusic.jpgOur next DVD in the Footprints of God series will be entitled “Abraham, Father of Faith & Works.” We will begin filming in Iraq — in Ur of Chaldees — which is the home of Abraham, just south of Baghdad (Gen 11:28-31).

Thanks to the Biblical Archaeology Society to which I subscribe, we can now listen to music that Abraham listened to.

Click here to listen to The Music of Ur, a musical duet featuring a lyre and double pipes such as those found at the ancient city of Ur. Click here to to learn more about these instruments and the music from that time period.

Enjoy! And you will hear this kind of music on our next Footprints of God DVD. If you want to help with a tax deductible donation click here. But do please pray for us.

Scientists Concluding Universe had a Beginning? God Smiles!

February 28, 2012

Scientifically this is big news. In the January 2012 edition of New Scientist Magazine it was stated that scientists are now facing up to the problem of the universe having a beginning – until recently they could postulate that it was eternal and the main theories to support this were “eternal inflation” and “multiverses”. However, [...]

Did You Know the Sun actually Revolves around the Earth?

September 1, 2011

Yes, the earth is stationary and the center of the universe. The sun and planets revolve around the earth. And not only that but the earth does not rotate. All of this is known by “Catholic geocentrics” who deny everything we know from science and proclaim that the Catholic Church infallibly teaches a geocentric universe. [...]

Gaga over Gaga

July 8, 2011

A Cultural Dissection by my friend Liz Lev: Who’s Judas? Who’s Lady Gaga? Whatever qualms about form and meaning that contemporary art might raise, at least Calatrava and Arnaldo Pomodoro can lay some claim to the hard-earned title of artist. This week I was confronted with another use of the title, the pop star. While [...]

Beethoven was Never Better – I Enjoyed This!

November 18, 2010
